LUCAS, A DOLLHOUSE, AND A TURTLE

Posted on: Thursday, July 31, 2014

This week we received Lucas's new Rock & Pebble pear house from Murray & Finn. Point blank - it's awesome. It's beautifully crafted and is a blank canvas for your child's imagination. I especially love the adorable pebble people. Lucas squealed when we put it together and wouldn't ya know. The first thing he did was run to his room to grab his Donatello. He placed him in the house and proclaimed "my home!". Yep. A house sure as heck is not a home without a little turtle action. I quite think Donatello makes an excellent addition. Maybe Rock & Pebble will come out with Ninja Turtle themed pebble figurines? Just saying. Christmas 2014 anyone? And ps - Murray & Finn is one of the cutest, wonderfully curated children's shops I've come across. Not only is it basically perfect, the mamas behind the shop are the absolute sweetest! I was featured on their blog in their new 'Mamas & Little Ones' series. Thanks so much for having us ladies!

NOT QUITE THREE

Posted on: Wednesday, July 30, 2014

I just adore these shots that Ivan took of Lucas and I. It was early morning and Dora was playing. Lucas had just finished his bottle and we were having our usual snuggle session. Lucas has become so very generous with kisses and puckers his lips justttt so. I don't know what is it but I've become increasingly emotional the closer we get to his 3rd birthday. The other day somebody asked how old Lucas was and I replied "two years". Then it hit me. We only have four months left until my boy turns 3. I swear I feel like we just planned his 2nd birthday party. This year has flew by at lightening speed. I wish I could bottle up his sweet snuggles, those giggles, and the kisses. Oh the kisses. I'm going to spend the next few months relishing in the fact that my boy is not quite three and soaking up all the goodness and hilarity that two has to offer. And then we move on to the three's. Which I know are going to bring new adventures and milestones. But until then..my sweet two year old baby he'll be.

Pineapples for the win! Lucas's tee is from the most adorable shop, Moozega. Made from organic cotton I'm in love with the black and white print. Summery yet chic! I can totally picture Lucas rocking this tee straight through the Fall layered with a knit cardigan. Because my love for pineapples is year round. Shop Lucas's tee here and follow Moozega on Instagram

"A portrait of my son, once a week, every week, in 2014."
Your favorite summer treat - firecrackers. They remind me of my childhood summers in NYC and now you love them just as much as mama. Side note: your bobos all lined up in a row. I promise we are working on this! 

MAMA WEARS

Posted on: Friday, July 25, 2014

Over the weekend my mother in law graciously watched the kid and Ivan and I were able to have a few hours to celebrate and hang with friends. I got to doll myself up and indulge in sangria. We came home to a sleeping bub and promptly fell asleep ourselves. A sangria coma if you will. The next morning we woke up to 5 loads of laundry and Frozen. Back to reality - it was fun while it lasted ;)

I wore my go to high waisted trousers  (last season's Zara) and a sheer, strapless blouse that has been a staple in my closet for years (purchased on a trip to Puerto Rico). My clutch is an Urban Outfitters clearance find. 

PRETTY LITTLE THINGS

Floral rompers that are on heavy, heavy rotation this summer (thrifted at the Good Will).

Sleeping toddlers wrapped up in their old swaddling blanket.

TRIPS TO TARGET AND BOYS WHO WEAR PINK

Posted on: Wednesday, July 23, 2014

About once a month we like to mosey uptown to our closest Target. Not because we need anything in particular (good grief walking into that store is a TRAP!) but simply because we enjoy the walk. This trip in particular had purpose - a new Ninja Turtle for the boy. Because you can never have enough turtles. We stopped for a cherry icee and Lucas was nice enough to share with mama (although none was spared for daddy). When we finally made it to Target Lucas couldn't decide which turtle he wanted. These are hard decisions people! After about half hour of serious deliberation he settled on a turtle lunch box and puzzle. Wins. 

And it must be noted that little boys who wear pink are bosses. I am loving his new tank from Kid + Kind. You must take a moment to check out this absolutely darling shop.

Also, this. A campaign that is supporting and encouraging kids to wear any color they choose - regardless of their gender. Started by Martine Zoer founder of Quirkie Kids, she is using her shop (chock full of PINK!) and campaign to spread tolerance of individual expression amongst kids and their peers - adults included. #freetowearpink
